Applications open for zenith Reporting Grant 2019!

Deadline: 18 January 2019

Are you a young journalist interested in the Arab world? Are you working in the Middle East or North Africa? Do you already have a great idea for a long-read feature in mind? And you would like to try a new format combing text, photo and video elements for a multimedia story? Then, this is your chance to apply for the zenith Reporting Grant 2019 which is sponsored by zenith Magazine, the Candid Foundation and alumni of the Herbert Quandt Foundation.

From their own experience, they know how hard it is to tell a great story in detail amid the daily scheduling pressures in journalism. They also know how rare the opportunities are for young journalists to work intensively on a topic for several days or even weeks. Even more so, when the resulting work is not the stuff for the latest breaking news contest, but rather an in-depth feature challenging readers.

The zenith Reporting Grant 2019 wants to fill this void and help to promote in-depth journalism.

Funding Information

They support three journalistic research projects with a maximum amount of 2000 Euro each.

  • Neither nationality nor employment status play a role in the selection of winners. Teams of two or more journalists are welcome to apply as well. In this case, funding must be shared among the applicants.

    • What is the story applicants want to research? In which way do they want to present it? And why do they think they are the right person to receive the “zenith Reporting Grant 2019”? (max. 500 words)
    • How much is the budget that applicants need for their report? On what exactly do they plan to spend it? (max. 100 words)
